The WA Government is calling for Expressions of Interest for for seven suitably experienced and qualified members to join the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Committee.


People with skills in anthropology, archaeology and engineering are particularly encouraged to apply.

Consideration of knowledge, skills, experience or qualifications in a range of other disciplines/fields will also be taken into account.

The Aboriginal Heritage Act allows for a total of 11 members on the Committee, with majority Aboriginal membership.


What is involved in being on the Committee?

The Committee was established under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 to undertake a range of functions, including providing recommendations in relation to approvals sought under the Act.

Members will be required to make a substantial commitment in terms of time and expertise to ensure the Committee fulfils its statutory obligations. This includes meeting twice per month.

Eligible Committee members will be remunerated and, where applicable, travelling costs will be reimbursed. Committee members who are full time public sector employees are not eligible for remuneration.

More information on meeting dates and current committee members can be found on the WA DPLH website here.
